Ok so, I'm trying to buy more RAM for my computer without having to go through the whole expensive process of buying it through our local computer centre. However, I have no clue about this whole latency ordeal; does the latency have to equal my processor speed to be efficient, or is it just that the higher the latency the more efficient the memory works, or am I just entirely wrong all together? :tazz:

Latency has to do with the access and refresh timings of your Memory (RAM). Buying lower latency Memory (RAM) say CAS 1.5 as opposed to CAS 2.0 will offer some improvement in performance. It has nothing to do with your Processing Speed. You do have to buy memory that is compatible with your Mainboard. and Processor.
